    Hi good people, would anyone know what might be wrong with my new Pekin? She'd be approximately 22 weeks old and I've had her for 2 weeks now. Yesterday I noticed her squinting her right eye, and she is doing it today as well....am getting worried that she might be ill....thanks all!

    Do you live in a dusty area? You might try flushing the eye with a saline solution

    One of my Pekin was closing one eye while the other was open. I tried to find preservative free saline. When I was unable to find it, I got out the "eye wash" I had bought and gently washed the duck's eye. The duck was fine the next day.

    Thanks everyone, she seems OK now. Yes we did have a couple of windy days that must've been it. :)
